Hey, I still check the news even on vacation, so I thought I'd send out a small post this morning! Not much going on in the world of news.......

Former winners Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt and Dale Jarrett head the entry list for the fourth Brickyard 400 NASCAR Winston Cup race Aug. 2 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

A total of 52 cars are on the entry list and drivers will bid for 38 starting spots through qualifying July 31-Aug. 1 at the 2 1/2-mile oval. Up to five provisional starters may be added. Practice starts Wednesday, July 30.

Gordon won the inaugural Brickyard 400 in 1994, Earnhardt took the second edition in 1995 and Jarrett won last year, taking over from Robert Yates Racing teammate Ernie Irvan in the closing stages. In addition to being the defending winner, Jarrett comes to the Brickyard event after winning the series' last outing at Pocono. (WRAL)

Asked to size up his boss, Steve Park meditated briefly, then replied: "He puts his pants on one leg at a time, just like you and I do. And just like you and I do, he has his up days and his down days. But most of the time, he's in a pretty good mood." When your boss possesses a glare that can melt ice, a snarl that can curl hair, and is nicknamed "The Intimidator" ... well, life can be a bowlful of scaries. But understand that Park is not intimidated by, or scared of, Dale Earnhardt. In fact, he regards him as a close friend and a valued colleague. "He's been really good to me, real patient," said Park, who is driving the No. 3 ACDelco Chevrolet owned by Earnhardt and his wife, Teresa, as a rookie in the Busch Grand National series.
